Commercial connected thermostats

What you get

Receive up to a $200 rebate from PSE when you purchase a qualifying commercial connected thermostat for your business.

Commercial connected thermostats connect to the internet so you can monitor and adjust temperature remotely. They also offer programming and multistage scheduling and allow you to sync HVAC operation with occupancy.


How you qualify

Customer requirements

  • You must be a PSE commercial electric or natural gas customer replacing a thermostat that is not capable of connecting to the internet.

  • Residential metered customers are not eligible. Please visit our residential thermostats page for other options.

  • Unoccupied temperature setback

Additional information


The programming capabilities of commercial connected thermostats are more advanced than thermostats that are not capable of connecting to the internet. They go beyond the 5-2 programming option, offering 365-day programming. You can even schedule special holiday settings for five years out.

History and analysis

Commercial connected thermostats save your HVAC history online. This data can be used to identify use patterns, diagnose failures, and help you troubleshoot problems such as imbalanced heating.


You can set notifications to alert you about extreme building temperatures and parts requiring maintenance. Thermostats without internet capabilities can only display a limited number of reminders based on HVAC run time or set intervals, but commercial connected thermostat alerts are based on the live and historical performance of your HVAC system.
